kkl2401: fair enough.

As for the missing symlink problem I'm having, you can use $SRCDEST instead of $srcdir. It's not a nice solution, but it's guaranteed to contain the downloaded sources.

Regarding the wrong ownership: there's a typo in the PKGBUILD - you are missing "g" in "$pkgdir" on the line where you call chown.

Updated to 8.20.

stativ: I'd really like to avoid letting makepkg extract the archive because it takes a while to extract it, then it takes a while to copy it from src to pkg and then it takes a while to compress it again. This way I can skip one of these steps.
But you're absolutely right about the ownership. I have no idea how that happens. When I look inside the pkg directory, I see nothing like that there, I also have no user with id 10 and no group with id 143 on my system. I thought running chown -R root:root would help but apparently not (I don't have much experience with fakeroot). Do you know how to fix this (ideally without getting rid of noextract)?

I have some suggestions:
* you should make sure that the files has some sane ownership, eg. root:root. Currently it is 10:143
* please let makepkg to extract the zip, because with the development version of makepkg that I'm using the build fails because if noextract is used, the symlink to sources is not created. You can take a look at eg. jdk7-docs.

Thanks for this package but I would think that you should install this in /usr/share/doc/java8 instead of /usr/share/doc/java
